. you look at the job creation. this is something that the obama administration talks about a lot. the president took office, there were losing hundreds of thousands of jobs at the end of the bush administration into the obama administration. and now the fight has been, the political fight has been over the durability of the recovery and jobs since then. when you go to the right of that chart you can see we have been adding jobs now for two years but we haven't been adding necessarily enough jobs to every month keep up with the increase of people in the working-age population, and to recover all of those jobs that had been lost. so that's where we stand right now. 125,000 jobs is the forecast for today. about an hour and a half, and 7.9% is the unemployment rate. it's the last big hurdle before the election. the last big piece of economic news for both campaigns, and for people to weigh before they make the decision on who to vote for. >> it's not just economic news. it has all the political implications. especially in the final days. that chart we've seen on the political campaig

president obama is re-elected, the jobs picture will worsen. but it's been a good week of reports for obama. home prices are up. consumer confidence hit its highest level in four years. incomes and spending are up. how do you still, peter, make the case that the u.s. economy is broken? >> well, we're just not grow in at the pace we should. the obama administration has sold america on the notion this is the worst crisis since the great depression. when mr. reagan took office we had double-digit inflation, double-digit unemployment and the jobless rate peaked at 10.8%. when he ran for re-election, the unemployment rate was down much lower and the economy was growing at 6.3%. three times what mr. obama has accomplished. you know, if the participation rate was the same today as it was when the recovery began -- not too long ago, mr. goolsbee, the unemployment rate would be 9.6%. in fact, baby boomer's participation is actually increasing. because in this poor economy, their retirement accounts are worth so little and they're not getting any interest on their cds that they're going back to work.
